How to Do a Brow Lamination on Thick Brows

A few special considerations exist when performing a brow lamination on a client with fuller eyebrows. 

While most people undergo a professional brow lamination to create the appearance of thicker eyebrows, those already blessed with full brows may find that the benefits lie more in creating an organized, well-groomed appearance.

Since the treatment is semi-permanent, it's essential to communicate to your client the limitations of the procedure and the likely outcomes. Let's examine how thicker eyebrows might affect your technique during the procedure.

A Brief Overview of Brow Lamination

A famous beauty treatment, brow lamination, involves reshaping and setting a person's eyebrows to create a fuller, more defined look. It can last several weeks, providing your clients with low-maintenance, effortlessly groomed brows.

In general, brow lamination utilizes a specially formulated solution that helps to relax and soften the hair, making it more pliable and more accessible to manipulate. This allows you to reshape the brows and create a desired look, whether a more structured, lifted appearance or a brushed-up, feathered effect.

You can adapt your process accordingly if your client wants a natural, everyday look or a more dramatic, defined brow.

Special Considerations for Thick Eyebrows

When working with clients with thicker eyebrows, several essential things to focus on and steps to take are outlined below.

  • Analyzing the natural thickness: Thick eyebrows often have a higher density of hair, which can affect the overall outcome of the lamination. Explore the density of the client's brow hairs to determine your best approach.
  • Respecting the natural shape: Thick eyebrows often have a distinct shape to maintain a natural look.
  • Addressing potential coarseness: Before proceeding with the treatment, addressing any issues related to texture and coarseness is essential. This may involve trimming excessively long hair or using a brow conditioner to soften and tame the client's hair.
  • Preparing for potential volume reduction: Brow lamination involves setting the hairs in a specific direction, making them appear more streamlined and compact. Discuss this aspect with your client to manage their expectations.

Just as you would with any other client, you must advise your clients with thick brows on the necessary steps to maintain their new look, such as avoiding excessive rubbing, applying brow serums or conditioners, and scheduling regular touch-up appointments.

Why Does Brow Lamination Work Better on Thick Brows?

Brow lamination works best on eyebrow hairs that are long or at least medium length, unruly, or going off in multiple directions. Some length is required so the formula can adequately adhere to your client's hair and work magic. This helps the lamination create a more organized, well-groomed effect where all hairs are in the right direction.

When performing a brow lamination on eyebrows that are too thin, short, or sparse, there may not be enough hair for the formula to adhere to, and the process won't be effective. This could culminate in disappointing results for you and your client, so take care during the consultation to analyze your client's eyebrows and set expectations with them.

When Brow Lamination Won't Work

Brow lamination may not be a good option in the following situations:

  • Your client's eyebrows should be longer or more sparse.
  • Your client's eyebrow hairs very stubbornly grow in the wrong direction.
  • Your client has susceptible skin.
  • Your client has a very asymmetrical face.
  • Your client is pregnant or breastfeeding.

Suppose your client's eyebrow hairs stiffly grow downward, for example. In that case, a brow lamination may not get them to lie flat in a coordinated direction. If your client's face is somewhat asymmetrical at the start, having newly symmetrical eyebrows resulting from a brow lamination may give them an odd appearance.

Brow Lamination FAQs

As an esthetician, you may encounter several client questions regarding brow lamination for thick brows. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we see.

How do you do eyebrows if they are thick?

Respect the client's natural brow shape, assess their hair density, and communicate with them about their preferences. Use the appropriate lamination products and follow your kit's step-by-step brow lamination process to properly use all the tools.

What is the procedure for thick eyebrows?

The procedure for brow lamination on thick eyebrows follows a similar process to other brow types. It involves cleaning the brows, applying a primer, lifting and fixing lotions to shape the brows, performing optional tinting or henna, using a shine repair product, and finishing with waxing, threading, or plucking to refine the shape. However, working with thick brows may require additional attention to detail or time for the formulas to work.

What is the best eyebrow treatment for fuller brows?

Brow lamination is one of the best eyebrow treatments for achieving the appearance of fuller brows. By reshaping and setting your hair, brow lamination can create the illusion of increased volume and density. Alternative treatments, like microblading, tinting, or brow extensions, can also help enhance the fullness of your brows.

How do you get the perfect brow lamination?

To achieve a perfect brow lamination, it's essential to clearly understand your client's desired brow shape, natural brow thickness, and any specific concerns or preferences they may have. Use high-quality products, apply proper techniques, and communicate with your client throughout the process to help ensure their satisfaction.
